What makes St.Moritz so fascinating? The Alpen diva’s attractiveness is undiminished.
Last summer, over 20 cranes in the village were proof of an incredible constuction boom. Everyone wants to get the last apartment – preferably with Norman’s signature and a view of the lake.
A path is being beaten to her door and St.Moritz is getting a total makeover after 150 years. However, the old lady is as lively, healthy and desirable as ever.
St.Moritz is sexy and exuberant. There’s always something going on - glamour and gossip for the media. St.Moritz is also intense, elegant and ahead of its time

Freeride inferno again before a difficult decision - to change of date to 08 April 2006! Differently than on the secured and prepared runways, which particularly warm up and with less frosty conditions to winter friends the hearts, the hidden gutters and slopes, which should form the heart of the distance, are pulled by the mild temperatures in. Good conditions off the secured runway area attract daily Backcountry drivers and individualists, extreme running A là "Frejn's Freeride inferno" required however not only the participants an optimal condition off... With the common view of the appointment calendar - Ischgl waits this year among other things still with would skirt-ferment Pink up - one decided on a premature Osternestsuchen behind shrubs and tree on 08 April. To hope it remains then only that the springful snow masses swallow neither nest nor Boarder!

Until late spring, the glacier skiing region atop the Zugspitze attracts alpine-skiers, snowboarders, carvers, and freestylers, who also appreciate the traditional and safe descents on artificial snow. Beyond the well-maintained ski slopes, however, the Zugspitze region is a veritable El Dorado for deep-snow enthusiasts.
As in the past, the skiing season kicks off with the Viva Winter Fun-Festival in November 2004, a weekend filled with fun and action. Just in time for this year's season opening will be the inaugural run of the new 6-chair ski-lift "Sonnenkar" which is expected to be lifting skier’s comfort levels to new heights as well!
Whether beginner or racing expert, you are sure to find your favorite ski slope. There are a total of 118 kms (73 miles) of downhill runs of all difficulty levels, including the world famous "Kandahar", Germany’s only downhill run with a "World Cup License."
70 Years of Olympic Flair: the 1936 Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Turn back the reels of time: 70 years ago, the whole world had its eyes on Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Between February 6 and 16, 1936, the Olympic Winter Games were carried out at the foot of Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze. That makes the market-town community the only place in all of Germany that once boasted the world famous winter Olympic rings. For those interested in taking a historic walking tour through the Olympic setting, a map is available under the name of "Erlebnistour-Olympia". Follow the special route beginning at the Olympic Ski Stadium at the base of the Gudiberg Mountain and ending at the finish line of the downhill slope. The bob-sleigh track – only recently reclaimed – is one of the interesting stations on this tour including the Olympic Ice Stadium and Lake Reissersee. The map also includes information about each of the Olympic arenas.
More than 650,000 people visited Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936 to cheer on the 755 athletes from 28 countries. The winter metropolis bustled with competitions on the ski jumps, slopes, ice rinks and tracks – the best athletes in the world battling for the coveted medals. In the Ski Stadium alone, more than 130,000 spectators flocked to watch the dare-devil athletes racing down the ski jump, flying through the crisp winter air and landing into the snow white field of the arena

On July 2nd, 2003, when the International Olympic Committee selected Vancouver as the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, an incredible honor and responsibility was also bestowed upon Whistler. Along with Vancouver, Whistler Blackcomb and the community of Whistler became an official Olympic venue.
The resort of Whistler was in fact born on an Olympic dream. Franz Wilhelmsen, the man who opened Whistler for skiing in the 1960's, did so in the hopes of hosting the Games here. In the following years, some Whistlerites have been a part of the Games as athletes, spectators and organizers. Now, everyone in Whistler will have the unique chance to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
